it actually started with larry murphy -- when he was still in washington. caps fans got sick of him turning over the puck whenever he got bumped so they started chanting "whoop(s)" at him. naturally it really escalated when he played for the pens and the teams played all the time.

gonchar was a natural transition -- former cap, similar issue in washington, same number.
